Funnyman Jamie Kennedy (Malibu's Most Wanted) stars as aspiring cartoonist Tim Avery, who's already hesitant about becoming a father when he finds himself taking care of someone else's infant, a baby with amazing abilities. Somehow the tot has stumbled upon the Mask of Loki, the mythological object with mystical power that transforms the wearer into his hyperactive, shape-shifting alter ego. In addition to coping with a baby with mind-boggling supernatural abilities, stressed-out Tim must contend with the evil Loki (Alan Cumming - X2: X-Men United), who wants his mask back.]]>

You need only read the other reviews of this film to see how much people hate it.Among the worst films in my "worst films ever " category this one tops the list!!!
So congratulatios Mr.Guterman YOU just set the new low standard for america's most craptastic movies.(take bow and let us stuff this movie were it belongs)
Aside from that, the movie had some overall embarassingly stupid characters that were very badly acted and had a drunken out of control car wreck of a storyline, all about 7 or 8 years too late. Everything about this movie was just ridiculous. It completely failed at being zaney cartoony fun, something I remember from the first Mask film. Easily one of the worst films of 2005.
Junk, rotten, stinker, garbage... Try all the words you know and none, not even in every possible combination can convey just what a bad movie this is.
Take, for instance, the scene when bleary-eyed new daddy Tim Avery (Jamie Kennedy) comes within inches of feeding his baby son a broken light bulb. Brilliantly shocking!
Then there's that bit when Avery mistakes his wife for the film's villain and attacks her, slamming her to the floor and beginning to throttle her. Move over, Raging Bull! Truly chilling stuff!
How about the lengthy, amazingly violent sequences in which the family's jealous dog and the infant repeatedly try to kill each other? Talk about taking Pet Sematary to a whole new bloodcurdling level!
Oh, you didn't know Son of the Mask was a horror film? Neither did we. This sequel to 1994's starmaking Jim Carrey-Cameron Diaz vehicle was marketed as a comedy for kids. Heck, it's even rated PG. Don't be fooled.
Outside of a few amusing occasions - thank goodness for troopers Alan Cumming and Ben Stein - Son isn't funny. It's creepy, grating and tiresome, hands down one of the worst sequels ever. And the only indication that it's a kids flick is its reliance on pee, poop, puke and even snot jokes for its (far too few) laughs.
Granted, the studio never should have green-lighted a Mask sequel now that Carrey has moved on to bigger and better things. Has there ever been an actor more perfectly suited for a role?
This is an impossible assignment for any actor, much less a mediocre talent such as Kennedy (Malibu's Most Wanted). That's probably why Kennedy's character wears the titular mask only twice in the film, and both occasions are underwhelming at best.Read more ›
